Places for Us in the Starsby Amz Kelso
ABOUT THE ART
'Places for Us in the Stars', Watercolour, Acrylic markers, Pencil, Water-soluble pencil & fineliner on Handmade Indian paper. Sadly my scanner brutalized the soft palette; you'll have to deal with this version of it... No matter how many levels I edited I just couldn't capture the contrast right! x___x It's an A6 in real life so it's sooo small, so sad I have to keep this print as a mini!
I was going to call it 'Constellations' as I've been listening to Eisley for days on end (they are so good, I have no shame & regret nothing) & when I came up with this idea I was listening to their Deep Space EP, but I thought... Nah, something sweeter! So, cute little purple hair buns and eyeball bows, tattoos, jeans and a big space for you right in her chest / ribcage... I thought it was sweet enough, the idea of star-crossed lovers & keeping a space for someone in your heart. Nice.
I painted this whilst tearing through the second half of Buffy (maybe I was also hopped up on all that Buffy x Angel cuteness)... The finale of Season Two had so many feels I had to move onto Season Three immediately to remedy my sadness.
